Watch the webinar video below.

Mention the words “artificial intelligence” in a contact center and you’ll likely see a lot of furrowed brows. From agents who might think that AI will take away their jobs. From managers who might worry that AI could hurt customer satisfaction. From an IT department that might be concerned about the time and people (and money) required to implement and manage AI. And from the senior leaders who might question whether investing AI will actually improve the company’s bottom line.

AI is the engine driving contact centers toward new ways of working, enhanced agent and customer experiences, and greater value to the organization. It’s not an obstacle to avoid; it’s a bridge to cross. So, how do you address everyone’s (very valid) concerns and get them all aboard the AI train?

Join Roy Atkinson and Lisa Hotchkiss to learn how you can build a business case for implementing AI in your contact center. They’ll cover:

  • Unpacking the state of AI today
  • Understanding where and how AI delivers value across the contact center
  • Addressing stakeholder concerns
  • Transforming AI doubters into champions
